As a lifetime member with Diabetes I found walking to be the best form of exercise because it doesn't put unnecessary strain on your body that could lead to glucose issues. One of my endocrinologists suggested walking 30 minutes three times per week. Hope this helps others.

i walk approximately 30 minutes a day.

Hi!! I'm trying to get back into walking after having been sick. I LOVE to walk!!! Now that spring is almost here in Boston, I'm hoping to get back out there & walk again!! I walk with a friend usually but today was such a nice day I went out by myself.

hi sandy. welcome to the group. i live to walk also.

I love walking. Since last 23 years I have been walking 4-5 kilometer in evening before dinner but not noticed its impact on sugar readings. Now since last 8-9 months i started walking in fast pace in morning but noticed that my sugars rise 60-70 mg/dl after brisk walking for 45 minutes. Now I take 2 units bolus after checking my sugars and then go for walk. Now I am more vigilant about my sugars. My BP level are now within limits and after carb reduction I have lost 20 lbs
